Liebe Leute,

ab und zu findet sich auch in den MSM (Massenmedien) ein Text, in dem tatsächliche Hintergründe der scharfen geopolitischen Spannung zwischen den USA (+ Gefolgschaft) und vor allem Russland und China zur Sprache kommen. Dazu gehört der heutige Gastkommentar von Jörg ROHMANN in focus-online.

Allerdings: Wie „Chefanalysten“ aus dem Finanzsektor Vernichtungskriege des US-Empire gegen andere, seine Interessen störende Länder in für unsereins unerträgliche Formulierungen kleiden, wird an folgender Passage deutlich:

„ … Doch militärisch sind nicht alle Konflikte zu gewinnen, wie die Abenteuer im Irak und Afghanistan gezeigt haben. Hier kommt das zweite Einsatzgebiet der „Währung als Waffe“ ins Spiel. …“

Der Beitrag Rohmanns wird folgend auszugweise wiedergegeben. Der vollständige Text (6 S) mit den korrigierenden/ergänzenden Anmerkungen ist im Anhang verfügbar.

Obama’s Appalling Hypocrisy On Ukraine – NATO Started It, Not Putin (1)
By William Pfaff

E x c e r p t s (Full text attached)

In Brisbane for the G20 discussions, the president oversaw David Cameron of Britain (who has become the new Tony Blair) reiterating the State Department script, and issuing a lordly warning to Vladimir Putin that he must do as he is told concerning Ukraine or there will be still more sanctions.
President Obama’s final words to Mr. Putin set the pattern for hypocrisy: “(We are) very firm on the need to uphold core international principles, and one of those principles is you don’t invade other countries or finance proxies … to break up a country that has mechanisms for democratic elections.”
Is it possible that no one in his own government has yet worked up the courage to tell Mr. Obama that it was his own United States State Department that arranged a public uprising in Kiev last February, against a democratically elected (if corrupt) president of Ukraine, and sponsored the coup d’etat that made Arseniy Yatsenyuk (known as “Yats” in the department) prime minister?
Obama, had he wished, could have read the whole story of the affair in a recent issue of the journal Foreign Affairs, written by the noted historian John Mearsheimer of the University of Chicago, or by Princeton’s Russia expert Stephen Cohen in other current publications.
Or he could have read an interview, published on the website TheRealNews.com Nov. 9, with Ray McGovern, a retired 27-year CIA veteran, who was the agency’s presidential daily briefer during the Reagan and George H.W. Bush administrations. McGovern explained how the affair was initiated at the NATO meeting in Bucharest in April 2008, which resolved to make Ukraine and Georgia NATO members (despite assurances to the contrary given by two American presidents; the Georgia attempt was made but failed in 2008). The president could even have read the inside story in this column, but I am certain did not.
As the West European members of NATO surely gave their agreement to this secret effort to overthrow and replace the Ukrainian government, it strikes me as not only hypocritical but dishonorable for them to have continued at Brisbane to berate Vladimir Putin for Russia’s supposed aggression against Ukraine.
Unfortunately, too many NATO members in Brisbane seemed to share what Dimitri K. Simes of the Center for the National Interest in Washington and Robert Blackwill of the Council on Foreign Relations say is the mood in Washington: to treat the Russian leader as if he were Slobodan Milosevic, Saddam Hussein or Moammar Gadhafi. Writing in the issue of The National Interest just out, the authors recognize that the crisis in Ukraine must be resolved in a manner that respects the dignity and national concerns and interests of both sides. Hasn’t anyone told Barack Obama?
